Working with Sellers, Working with Buyers, Experience and knowledge
I have been a life-long resident of Westchester; born and raised in Scarsdale, and a Bedford resident for many years. After having graduated from The American University, I received my graduate degree from The University of Arizona. I spent many years as a middle school teacher in Yonkers Public Schools.
Twenty seven years ago I began my real estate career, and have enjoyed great success. I have consistently been in the top 20% of all Westchester Realtors, and among the top tier agents within Houlihan Lawrence. I have been active in developing a Patient Navigation System at Northen Westchester Hospital's Cancer Center, and am President of the
Bedford Dog Owners Group. There is great delight in working with buyers and sellers of any price range. . Fellow Realtors know that working with me is easy. Most important is the transaction- and personality gets put aside. Other agents know that all parties will be treated fairly and honestly. I take pride in my follow-up, and attention to detail; providing exceptional service to both buyers and sellers.

Bought a home in Pound Ridge, NY
We had a wonderful experience searching for our new home with Barbara. Her warm and friendly demeanor made the whole process a pleasant one! Barbara has a wealth of knowledge about Northern Westchester and the surrounding areas which made exploring fun and informative. She really listened and understood what we were looking for in a home. We are now in a home we cherish every day.
Bought a home in Mount Kisco, NY
Selling, and simultaneously purchasing, a new home is extremely stressful, but having a professional like Barbara guide us through the process was a huge help. We really appreciated her extensive local knowledge and her honesty. If she thought something was not a good value, she was frank about it, even though she would get a higher commission if we overpaid. She was also very good at helping us see possibilities in properties we toured. If we got hung up on something that could be easily changed, she would mention some possible options that helped us look at the properties differently.

Barbara knew exactly what to do, when to do it, and who to call in for any work that had to be done, such as painting, repairs, etc. I feel that other agents have great respect for her. She takes her job very seriously and gets the things done. She is extremely organized and responsive. If I could be at the house when needed, she took over. I would certainly use her in the future.
Bought a home in South Salem, NY
Barbara was a huge help in purchasing our new home. She got a sense of our tastes and needs and identified the perfect home for us - one that we had not noticed on our own. She then helped us manage the process, did a great job with the negotiation and made useful suggestions throughout.

Barbara was very responsive throughout the entire home buying process. She never made us feel like we were bothering her when we had questions. As first-time home buyers, we had plenty of questions.
